HC Deb 25 February 1970 vol 796 cc334-5W
77. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will state his plans for increasing industrial relations between North-East Scotland and Scandinavia and Northern Europe.

Mr. Mason

I discussed trade relations during my visit to Oslo last week and I look forward to similar discussions in other European countries later in the year. I hope that firms in North-East Scotland will make increasing use of the comprehensive export promotion services of the Board of Trade and the Export Council for Europe, and in particular that they will be well represented in promotional events arranged for this year.
